    Maybe it's because I work for a Bank, we have about 300 people in IT

    -50/50 on the database teams are women.
    -About 80% of IT management roles are women.
    -I would say the "grunt workers" (server, node, printer, router repair and installations) are 90% men. We have a couple women down south. .
    -Application support is about 60/40, women
    -Vendors all seem to all be men.
    -IT security is about 50/50
    -Programmers all seem to be men. I can't think of a single woman on those teams.
    -Help desk about about 23-24 people there, say 9 women. But all managers there are women (3). No male managers at help desk or our testing labs.

    When I worked for Geek Squad we had ONE women in the entire district who was a "tech" (although there were women working for Geek Squad) and she was good! I learned a lot from her.

    Anyhow, any specific reason ya ask?

    We have 6 ladies, 4 of them are engineers and one of them is MCSE 2003 and pretty good with most things windows. I dont like to point out differences because I could be viewed as being sexist...........................but the girls help a lot with their organisation/tidying and labeling! :)

    These are slightly rounded approximations:

    Database: 20% Female/80% Male
    GIS: 70% Female/30% Male
    Programmers: 70% Female/30% Male
    IT Support/Security: 0% Female/100% male

    Database/IT are primarily men, while our GIS Technicians/Programmers are primarily women. Overall there a lot more women working here than men.

    maybe the reason why there are no women in my department is because is strictly networking cisco. There are a lot of of CCNP and 1 CCIE out here. I haven't seen a lot of women going the cisco route.

    So I take that as they aren't a big help on the technical side :)

    That's just so men feel needed ;)

    Or maybe it's because back when IT involved crawling around the floor and under desks, the guys wanted to ..... icon_twisted.gif

    Personally I'd like to see more women in IT. Conversing with a woman as opposed to an overweight, slick-haired, @sshole with broken english and no sense of personal hygiene would be a welcome change.

    Plus, I'm all about the sexual tension in the office. I love it. The receptionist totally wants me, homie.

    Quite a few...

    The other admin I work with is smoking hot and pretty good at her job (she is my backup). Makes for a pretty funny work day when you see people hitting on her all the time.

    1..... But nothing special....... So make that 0...... :p

    Whenever I go out to implement stuff I always make sure to flirt and have a tease with the hotties situated out at our clients which more than makes up for the lack of hotties in my department...... :)
